Review: Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile
Like the HTC Amaze 4G, the Samsung Galaxy S II is a top-of-the-line smartphone on the T-Mobile network. It checks off the bulk of today's most-wanted features, and does so in a package that feels better to use than previous Galaxy handsets from Samsung.
The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II includes the best hardware of the bunch, the same awesome display, the fastest wireless performance, and the best computing power. It's a decent voice phone, works well with T-Mobile's networks, though battery life is highly variable.
The Galaxy S II's camera is outstanding and delivers consistently good results when it comes to still images and video. The Galaxy S II offers plenty of options to consume music and video, and the large display is an entertainment center in your pocket.
